Favorite Scenes In Film

Personal Top-Ten scenes in film history.
10The Dark Knight

Just about every scene with the Joker in it can be considered outstanding. But the Interrogation Scene has the be the finest moment of the film. From the Jokers playfully, twisted toying of Batman's mind to the anger and frustration pent up in Bruce Wayne, it is a joy to watch.
9Dirty Harry

Up there with 'The Empire Strikes Back' in terms of being iconic. Clint Eastwood's Harry Callahan will go down in film lore as one of the best characters to ever grace the big screen. A lot of that can be pointed at because of this simple phrase.

In my opinion, one of the most under-appreciated films of the 21st century. A boxing match portrayed in a series of interviews it is, and the knockout punch being the final interview. And boy, did the punch land. It's mesmerizing in every sense of the word how cynical Nixon is portrayed, and the way he actually believes what he is saying.
7Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

You had to know it was going to be on here at some point. Cliché as it is, this is probably the most iconic scene in film history. You don't have to have seen Star Wars to know of this scene, you are born knowing; at least that's what it feels like.
6Saving Private Ryan

The opening 24 minutes of this film, at the time, was the most gruesome and painfully accurate scene done of war ever. Many D-Day veterans have said this the most stunning portrayal of the Normandy Landing ever done in film. Say what you want about the rest of the film, this scene is jaw-dropping.

"Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown." Funny how that short sentence can mean so much and in Polanski's Chinatown it's the perfect summary. Such a sentence couldn't have capped off my favorite neo-noir film any better.
4Full Metal Jacket

Of course everyone will always talk about the drill instructors, hmm, poetic profanity as the best part of Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, however, the dehumanization of Vincent D'Onofrio's Private Pyle has got to be my personal favorite. And the ending to the first half couldn't have been any better.
3The Social Network

What can I say that great about this scene. The vibrancy of the color, the crystal clear scenery, the perfect close ups or the outstanding remix of, "In the Hall of the Mountain King" done by Trent Reznor. How about all of the above. This is the best scene, from an artistic standpoint, in the best film of 2010.
2Children of Men

The shots done in this film are bar-none. From the long takes to the tracking shots it is absolutely wonderful. The tracking shot of the Uprising scene is one for the ages, and a spectacle to behold.
1Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

Powerful acting. The performance that James Stewart put on is the very definition of powerful acting. The swayed waddling from lack of energy, the raspy voice, the emotion on his face, everything. It's emotional, and its beautifully democratic.
